Wilfried Zaha Could Play For Real Madrid, Says Graeme Souness
Graeme Souness has paid Wilfried Zaha a huge compliment by suggesting that he could play for Real Madrid.
The Crystal Palace attacker just signed a new deal with the side, in a deal that would see him play at Selhurst Park for another five years.
And on pundit duty for the game was Souness, who was full of praise for the player. He said: "I think he's sensational."
"I can see him playing for Real Madrid, that's how good he is. I think there's maybe a handful of players who have got the change of direction and balance that he does, and I think he should get more penalties, he isn't a diver.
"I think he's got a unique talent and with the utmost respect to Crystal Palace - and maybe he's been scarred by the experience at Manchester United - he's ready for a big, big club, the biggest clubs.
Zaha reminds me a bit of Bale before he started to refine his style and become a truly world class player. Got all the tools #CRYWAT- Harry Sherlock (@Harry_Sherlock) August 26, 2018

Zaha is class really should had held on to him.- James (@the_utdway) August 26, 2018
Zaha would be a world class signing for us in January. I'd be tempted to sell Ramsey to pay for Zaha.- William (@MasterfulMesut) August 26, 2018
Crystal Palace have lost two on the spin but they might well be the best team outside the top four. Very unlucky today. Zaha is class.- Neil Monnery (@neilmonnery) August 26, 2018
If he stays at Palace he's going to end up with no trophies and think, 'What if'.
"I think now he's ready. Even for the big two in Spain, I think both of them would welcome him with open arms, he's a door opener, and there isn't too many of those players around.
"He's unique in our football. He's in that league, he's got the stuff that gets you on the edge of your seat."
Having just signed a contract with Palace, it's unlikely that Zaha will be shooting off anytime soon.
But do you think Souness has a point?
